If there is one thing that I truly enjoy is decorating & recycling. Having so many years of designing & decorating in the TV industry, I truly learned more about re-purposing things & working on budgets. I, at times, miss the TV industry but others I do not. It is an industry that takes up a lot of ones time & as a single mom, I missed out on moments that I cannot be repeated.
For years now, I have not only moved a lot but have also repurposed many items, even in my own homes. I might have a piece that someone might see it as garbage or only for one purpose, as I think to myself, "What else can I use it for?"
My girls laugh at me & call me the "Recycling Queen" but they also understand how I have had to be creative in so many situations.
When visiting your office supply store & you are walking down the isles & happen to run into file organizers, just don't look at them for files but they can also be used as a decorative item. Here I am repurposing it as an artificial plant arrangement for the wall. I have surrounded it utilizing a wood frame that I had and now have created WALL ART for a clients women's bathroom.
To see more on what I did, you can visit my YouTube channel or my facebook page. I will WARN YOU....while taping, my teenage daughter offered to help & it got a bit cooky & we laughed some, as some bloopers happened but were not removed when the piece was edited...
All I can say is AS A SINGLE MOM, I FULLY UNDERSTAND ABOUT LIVING ON A BUDGET BUT I WILL ALSO ADVISE YOU TO THINK "OUT OF THE BOX". It can be challenging & fun!!!
